Five stocks you can fall in love with

One of the first – and probably most important – rule in investing to never let your emotions control your decisions. While I agree 100% with that piece of advice, I also find it hard not to fall in love with a few stocks I have followed through the years.

That is not to say I would not exit a position in the following stocks if conditions shift and bearish news emerges, but simply that these are stocks you can love, and which I expect will continue to build on their recent gains.

Each of the following stocks underlie companies with strong histories, and strong forecast of future growth.

A big piece of why I am in love with these stocks is the strong forecast earnings growth. While some of that earnings growth is going to tied to temporary – and arguably – “fudged” earnings growth, you can look at the long-term forecast growth for a much more realistic picture. If the market loves the stocks now, it is safe to assume the stocks will stay in favor as long as the company is able to show continued growth

There are five stocks I love, that I expect to continue rising in the foreseeable future.
